about

"Moving into a more ‘live’ sound than previous releases, Space For Wishes is an incredibly rich and fully-formed release that wears its heart, and its influences, on its sleeve."
Kier Wiater Carnihan, the-monitors.com

"From the moment opening track ‘Grow Slow’ starts up, there is a huge wash of sound which gradually unfurls to reveal all kinds of magical moments. Glacial guitar notes ring out and spiral, taking on the album’s underlying concepts of desires and wishes and creating a real sense of how thoughts and emotions can so easily come and go, sometimes sticking around for longer while at others flying away before we can fully grasp them."
Chris Marsh, crossradar.com

"Klangalchemie eines sehr konzentriert und keinesfalls mit Scheuklappen arbeitenden Multiinstrumentalisten - mit David Kleinekottmann wird in Zukunft hoffentlich auch auf internationaler Ebene zu rechnen sein."
Andreas Schiffmann, musikreviews.de

"A Super Novaish medley of intricate design, musically fused together with the kind of design what articulates the architecture of ever single wish: alive, living, dead, and yet to be imagined. Music like this requires it’s own slipstream of conscious appreciation of art and the Universe. And yet, this album is so subtle to not overwhelm the senses or prove something brash. Somethings tells me the artist has just pulled off a little alchemy – and your wishes are heard."
Lena Ski, redcarpetliving.wordpress.com

"Space For Wishes feels like a natural extension of his earlier releases. As a huge Radiohead fan myself it's hard not to draw some similarities. A song like “Symmetric Ostinato” feels like it could be a distant cousin to a song like “Weird Fishes - Arpeggi” but aside from the picking patterns the melancholy in general just has a similar feel."
Matt Jensen, nomoredivision.com

"Radiohead, Brian Eno und Elbow sind ein paar der musikalischen Einflüsse von Present Paradox. Dahinter steckt der Dortmunder Filmstudent David Kleinekottmann. Der ist ein echtes Multitalent, denn egal ob Klavier, Gitarre oder Schlagzeug – er spielt alles selbst. Wünsche und Sehnsucht sind die Themen, die Present Paradox in seinen Stücken bearbeitet."

Track Name: Grow Slow
Possibility
the possibility
makes me weightless
keeps my smile

like a short touch
filled up with warmth
breath the cold out
breath the cold out
out and dance

so why, why, why, why not
let it grow, slow, slow, slow. slow
so why, why, why, why not
let it grow, slow, slow, slow. slow

when we hug
stronger than the first time
we feed the wishes
feed our wishes

why don't you dare
to speak out loud
softly revealed
to your ears
out and hear

so why, why, why, why not
let it grow, slow, slow. Slow
so why, why, why, why not
let it grow, slow, slow. Slow
Track Name: Symmetric Ostinato
the wind sweep
through the fields

in a hazy light
I get of and get lost

could you take me
out the absence

could you pull me
pull me out of the roots

my access was barred
the cord not drawn

the light feelings
burrowed in the sand
the sand

and how silly
to ignore the sign

I jump through your eyes
and your creature
posses me
posses me
Track Name: Eldorado
it fly's around my head
hovering above my steps
cold breeze on the parking place
mirage of your silhouette

take a deep breath
body filled with ants
and what passes by is a
dwindling daydream of

Eldorado, full horizon
Eldorado, full horizon
Eldorado, full horizon
Eldorado, full horizon

waiting for your call
a loud brooding shout
hearts wisdom starts to cry
ears closed, calling it a lie

sitting on the curb
and waiting for your car
could pick me up?
and drive me to

Eldorado, full horizon
Eldorado, full horizon
Eldorado, full horizon
Eldorado, full horizon
Track Name: Space for Wishes
on my sheet
I got all of them
straight from my core
straight from my core

blowing all the seeds
from the dandelion
into the summer wind
into the summer wind

with a snap of my fingers
and a blink of my eyes
the ghost leaves his bottle
the ghost leaves his bottle

whispering secrets
hidden for years
to your his open ears
to your his open ears

your the ghost
I sent out

your the ghost
I sent out

to open the space
for whishes
Track Name: Letter of...
I send you this latter of sympathy
I send you this latter of love

and for the next weeks
an answer to is all I ask

in the middle of my room
hope grows to the ceiling

and all my thoughts burst against the rock
and all my feels build an ear-battering thunder


my behavior is driven by sympathy
my behavior is driven by love

over the last weeks
not so sure what it all it all means

in middle of my room
hope fights uncertainty

and all my thoughts burst against the rock
my feel build an ear-battering thunder


choose me, choose me, choose me, choose me
Track Name: Responder
If the doors don't open
no reply to my call

the final words are spoken
and I don't regret them at all

guard of the gate
you didn't told me how long

how long I got to stay
how long I got to wait


leave this message
on my answering machine

leave this message
on my answering machine

leave this message
on my answering machine


I know you're still there
invisible in front of me

so could step aside
and let me pass

I will call you back
when I'm in the mood
